Margaret Lawrence, the newly named director of programming for the Moss Arts Center, at Virginia Tech and, prior to that, the award-winning director of programming at Dartmouth's Hopkins Center, picked tunes for Monday, July 15 at Songs for Listening.
Margaret is an award-winning arts administrator and performance curator with an impeccable record of organizing and presenting culturally inclusive arts projects, Margaret's 'Class Divide Project', a groundbreaking, multi-genre initiative exploring social and economic class, resulted in collaborations with many of Dartmouth’s research centers, the development of new curricular approaches and multiyear funding from the Mellon Foundation. She also created STEMArts, a commissioning program embedding emerging music composers with university science and engineering departments that is fueled by the inspiring power of interdisciplinary discovery.
In 2015, Margaret received the William Dawson Award for Programmatic Excellence from the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP). The award is presented each year to an individual or organization for the quality, innovation and vision of program design, audience building and community involvement efforts.
